Test your configuration in a test environment
Once you've completed your configuration and tested it on your computer, we recommend you also test it in a test environment that's set up like the future productive environment:
- Use a reader of the same hardware type as the ones that you'll later use in the productive environment.
- If you've used this reader for other tests before, do a factory reset.
- Connect the reader to a test host system.
- Deploy the configuration in the same way as you'll later do it in the field (i.e. via BEC file upload or BALTECH ConfigCard).
Autoread doesn't work in your test application?
When you switch from BALTECH ID-engine Explorer to your test application, Autoread mode may be disabled on the test reader. To avoid this, please always disconnect the reader from your computer when you're done in ID-engine Explorer, and then reconnect the reader to start testing in your test application.
